— New York businessman Donald Trump has won 1,047 delegates.
— Next speaking engagement is in Charleston West Virginia, according to his campaign website
— During his victory speech tonight, he said “Ted Cruz – I don’t know if he likes me or he doesn’t like me but he is one hell of a competitor”
— Ohio governor John Kasich has won 171 delegates. It is mathematically impossible for him to win the nomination before July but he remains in the race in hopes of achieving a contested convention this summer.
— Kasich gave a speech Tuesday evening, presenting himself as a moderate alternative to Trump. “I’m going to talk about the choice America faces in this election. And it’s frankly a choice between two paths. Two very different paths.”

— Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has won 2,202 delegates.
— Clinton has already begun focusing on the general elections. Her only tweet after the release of the Indiana primary results was “Donald Trump is the presumptive @GOP nominee. Chip in now if you agree we can’t let him become president”
— Clinton will be spending the next two days primarily fundraising in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.
— Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has won 1,400 delegates.
— During his victory speech in Indiana, he said “I understand that secretary Clinton thinks this campaign is over. I’ve got some bad news for her. Tonight we won a great victory in Indiana…more and more delegates to the democratic convention take a hard look at which candidate is generating the kind of enthusiasm, excitement, and voter turnout that we need to make sure that somebody like a Donald Trump does not become president. I think you’ll see more and more delegates concluding that that candidate is Bernie Sanders.”
— Sanders will hold rallies in Charleston and Morgantown in West Virginia on Thursday.
